MILL

Mill

Easily Program Any Part

BobCAD-CAM software for milling delivers advanced 2.5, 3, 4, & 5 axis cutting capabilities with a fully integrated CAD design system that allows you to seamlessly transition from designing your part geometry to assigning advanced toolpaths. The CAD-CAM software for milling offers powerful toolpath options that perform high speed machining and multiaxis cutting operations, taking full advantage of your CNC milling machine’s capabilities. It provides CNC programming tools that deliver speed and efficiency to help you achieve precision parts in fewer steps.

NEW FEATURE: Copy with Geometry

Reduce programming time by eliminating geometry selection for copied machining operations. New CAM feature makes toolpath iterations faster when copying and pasting machining features.

MILL FEATURES

BobCAD-CAM milling software delivers the functionality you need to program everything from simple engraving, profile, pocket and hole cycles, to complex simultaneous 4 & 5 axis milling routines. It incorporates a full range of sophisticated, efficient and modern machining strategies through a simple wizard-driven interface that makes programming quicker & easier, even for new and occasional users. Dynamic Machining Strategies™ minimize your programming while advanced solid simulation lets you test and confirm your work, giving you confidence in your part programming.

Port Machining

Port Machining

Machine complex interior geometries with ease and precision. Port machining provides a specialized toolpath operation with optimized workflow. Spend less time tweaking settings and more time cutting chips.

Multiblade

Multiblade

The Multiblade operation has four patterns specifically to handle a particular aspect of the part. Roughing, Blade finishing, Hub finishing, and Fillet finishing, creating an optimum toolpath with very little input from the user.

Auto 3+2 Roughing

Auto 3+2 Roughing

5 Axis index roughing is now added to 3 Axis Advanced Roughing, Index, and rough automatically using auto 3 + 2. Spend less time creating index systems and saving operation stock, and more time cutting chips.

APT Format

APT Format

Now, you can easily set your NC File Extension to ‘.apt’ in the Current Settings dialog to output in this format, typically used by Third-party post-processing software.

CAM Tree Enhancements

CAM Tree Enhancements

New workflow improves productivity, providing a better user experience for optimizing CNC machining cycles and toolpath creation. Post and run faster with V34s new and improved CAM Tree navigation and workflow. Double click edit, auto blank, extended CAM Tree, posting fonts, backplot visibility, single operation posting, CAM Tree notes with system settings to default user preference.

Detect Open Edges

Detect Open Edges

2 Axis “open pocketing” selection is made easier with automatic open edge detection found in V34. Reducing or eliminating geometry creation previously needed to drive advanced pocketing patterns used for open pocketing.

Deburring

Deburring

New edge breaking toolpath for in setup deburring. Collision-free toolpath supporting undercut edge breaking is a few clicks away. Select your model and tool, V34 does the rest. Available for 3, 4, and 5 Axis deburring.

Turn Milling

Turn Milling

New Toolpath provides 4 and 5 axis programmers additional options for roughing. Achieve higher material removal rates while eliminating stringy bird nest chips with the New Turn Mill Multiaxis Toolpath.

3 - 5 Axis Toolpath Conversion

3 - 5 Axis Toolpath Conversion

New toolpath option makes 5 Axis programming easier with automatic 5 axis conversion. Use 3 axis toolpaths to program 5 axis jobs and let V34 automatically tilt away collisions.

Multiaxis Finishing

Multiaxis Finishing

Finish walls and floors with new specialized toolpaths that optimize workflow. 5 Axis machining patterns that offer the power and speed of the Multiaxis Roughing in finishing! Minimal input with maximum results! Barrel tools supported with 5 Axis Premium.

Probing

Probing

Touch off your tools, set your work offset or perform in-process measurements with one of the 41 probing cycles that are now available in V33’s new probing module.

Hole Feature Recognition

Hole Feature Recognition

Find holes sizes, types and depths faster with automatic hole recognition! Using a knowledge base, users can customize conditions to optimize hole processing for their shop’s needs.

Steep Shallow Operations

Steep Shallow Operations

Achieve up to 70% faster calculation times with better surface finishes using this combination toolpath. Best target steep and shallow areas of your part geometry with a single operation.

Barrel Mill Tool

Barrel Mill Tool

Reduce cycle time while improving surface finish using Barrel Mill tools for 3, 4 and 5 Axis Toolpaths.The expanded surface area of a Barrell Mill cutter allows for larger step downs / step overs without sacrificing the desired cusp height. Standard, Advanced, Tangent, Lens, Double, Section and Taper Barrel Mills are supported in V33.

Corner Slow Down

Corner Slow Down

Advanced federate mapping to slow cutting motion down as the tool approaches corners or sharp changes in the direction. Apply corner slowdown on internal corners, external corners or all corners and use custom settings to eliminate corner blowout or overloading your tools.

Pecking Options

Pecking Options

With prior versions pecking was limited to the Drill Hole operation alone. V33 now adds pecking options to additional operations: Center, Counterbore, Chamfer and Ream all support pecking.

Side Roughing Patterns

Side Roughing Patterns

You can now choose from single direction cutting (zig) or bi direction cutting (zig zag) patterns with sorting control that results in more efficient toolpath.

Multiple Drill Tip Positions

Pocketing: Multiple Drill Tip Positions

We use Drill Tip Positions to define the pilot hole location for your pocketing cycles to start the tool in. Prior to versions were limited to a single position, V33 now supports multiple Drill Tip Positions (pilot hole locations) for a single pocket operation.
